As part of a major fundraising effort, the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon will be auctioning half marathon and ultra entries, as well as a pair of autographed Usain Bolt’s PUMA spikes, to participants with the highest bids.
20 half marathon and 10 ultra marathon entries will be auctioned at www.oldmutual.co.za/twooceansmarathon.
Bidding for the half marathon entries opens at R950 on Monday 22 February, providing those participants who missed the entry deadline with a chance to secure an entry. The first auction is for half marathon entries and runs through until Wednesday 10 March. The auction for ultra marathon entries opens on 4 March, with bidding also starting at R950, and running through until 10 March. Winning bids will also get a PUMA product voucher worth R1 500.
Also going on auction is a pair of Usain Bolt’s autographed PUMA spikes, exact replicas of the spikes that took him to victory in last year’s World Championships. This auction opens on Monday 22 February and runs through to Monday 5 April, with bidding starting at R15 000. The winner will be announced on Friday 9 April.
All funds raised will go towards helping the event’s official charity NOAH (Nurturing Orphans of AIDS for Humanity). Contact them directly on 0860 50 60 70
